CONTEST: The Results!

The nominations are in and we have a winner! Once again it was a clear victory, with the top scorer earning 3 more points than joint 2nd place finishers Amir and Donovan.


AND THE WINNER IS...


He won with a very impressive score of 84 points. He was solid throughout all the categories, most notably in Best Production Design where he predicted the full lineup. He will receive a $40 Amazon gift card.

There are also some extra prizes this year for those who were the only one to predict a particular nomination. Those prizes went to:

Jason for predicting Dirty Wars in Best Documentary Feature.
Tom for predicting Christian Bale in Best Actor.

You can head on over to the full spreadsheet to see how everyone else fared.

The nominations weren't as shocking as last year's but there were still 4 nominations that stumped us all:
- "Alone Yet Not Alone" for Best Original Song.
- The Grandmaster for Best Costume Design.
- Dallas Buyers Club for Best Film Editing.
- The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug for Best Sound Editing.

I'd like to say one final thank you to all those who participated. Hope to see you competing again next year! It has been a lot of fun. :)

  1. I'm surprised that Tom was the only one to predict Bale for actor...I would have, but never thought to leave out Hanks.

    1. Crazy right? I actually had Christian Bale predicted until Leo won the Globe, then I predicted him instead.

    1. Agreed. I thought he gave the best performance in American Hustle, followed closely by Bradley Cooper.

  6. Can I get a virtual cookie for not predicting AMERICAN HUSTLE for Hair and Makeup?
